Dear Lord and Good Teacher,

We thank you for giving us the opportunity to celebrate this wonderful occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Assumption Catholic School. At this special time we give thanks for all of you who are here present and all those who have contributed to the life and success  of this school throughout the 50 years history.
Almighty Lord, as we mark and celebrate 50 years of service to this community, we also give thanks for those who have learned about you here, those who have grown in faith here and those who have made Assumption School a special place.
 May the staff, parents and children always value their time and each other’s efforts at this school.  May they look back in appreciation and forward in hope.

Today, as we celebrate this milestone not only in the life of the Assumption Catholic School in Perth Amboy but of our entire Ukrainian Catholic Church in the United States, we we ask your blessings on us and we pray that students of the present and future generations may learn in this school to know, to love, and to serve the only true God, and to worship Him according the sacred traditions of our ancestors in the Ukrainian Rite of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
We ask the  Patroness of our school, the Blessed Virgin Mary, to keep us under her special protection, so that we may prove ourselves worthy of God’s continued blessings for many years to come.
 
AMEN
